A reporter from The Boston Daily Advertiser published October 10, 1863 who writes, “Guarding a parterre is a great black and white Newfoundland, lying faithfully upon the pedestal whereon the artist placed him.” This statue appears as No. 83 in the 1870 Janes, Kirtland & Co. Catalogue on a cast iron base and a slightly larger size.

The architecture of Belmont Mansion makes it one of the most significant homes of 19th century Tennessee.

Sold by the Acklen family in 1887, the house went to a developer who began one of Nashville’s early suburbs.

It was then purchased by two women who in 1890 started a college which evolved into Belmont University. Today the Belmont Mansion Association, which was formed in 1972, owns the collection, runs the museum, and shares this unique story of 19th century Nashville with visitors from far and near.
